I loved reading these poems. They express spiritual truths easily and beautifully. The sonnet form seems to suit the spiritual subjects perfectly. It's a great challenge to use a form like the sonnet - which is quite strict - and be completely natural, and even liberating. There is hope, longing, beauty and most of all reassurance in the radiant spiritual nature of reality in these poems. They are great examples of the close link between spirituality and poetry, as evidenced by poets like Rumi, Kabir and Walt Whitman. Alan Jacobs is their worthy spiritual and poetic descendant.
